"I was introduced to geocaching in 2009 by a German puzzle solver, whose sister lived next door. I liked the idea of puzzle caches then,
and still do, both solving and setting. I also like to walk in the countryside while finding caches, and prefer quality to quantity. I also
support Opencaching UK. I have found caches in N.America, Africa, Asia and Australia, as well as Europe. I worked in commercial aviation before
retiring (mostly) 8 years ago. I worked in Qatar for 2 years, very different caching in 4WD vehicles over the sand dunes and rocks, in
temperatures exceeding 50C. I still have some active caches there. In Somerset, I've been a Geocaching Advisor to Somerset Wildlife Trust,
and compiled their Landowner Agreement. On the Somerset Levels, I have also been Geocaching Advisor to Natural England, and the RSPB.
I also developed the new Forestry England West Landowner Agreement. I've been a GAGB Friend, and Area Rep since 2018. My other hobbies
include quizzes, being the quizmaster at my local for the past 7 years, golf and playing music."
